reasons why the decalcomanie mv is problematic:

  • wheein tries to reject the kiss by putting her finger against the guys mouth, he pushes it aside and kisses her anyways
  • hwasa tries to walk away from the guy, he grabs her wrist and kisses her anyways
  • solar PHYSICALLY resists against the guy and is clearly not consenting and he RESTRAINS her and forces the kiss on her
  • (moonbyul’s kiss, however, is NOT problematic because she initiates the act, and brings the guy down to her, and does not exhibit any signs of objection/discomfort throughout the kiss, and consents)
  • rbw glorifies and romanticizes the nonconsent/sexual violence portions of wheein/hwasa/solar’s scenes by adding in aesthetics and glory shots of the kiss scenes
  • this in turn trivializes the act of sexual assault, which is already rampant
  • (we should portray sexual assault as what it is: assault)
  • romanticizing sexual violence in media also encourages women to both overlook and accept sexual violence in their everyday lives
  • this prevents cases of sexual violence from being reported and most of all, normalizes the act
  • if you really want to effect change, it’s important to speak out against the sexual violence you see in media, and not to tell others to “chill out”
  • again, this is not about your biases kissing dudes, this is about speaking against sexual violence in media that perpetuates the very real sexual violence against women in society
